The Pas man confesses murder

A man with a violent criminal past has admitted to a deadly Manitoba shooting.

Jonathan Diego Young, 24, pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder and attempted murder for the October 2009 incident in The Pas. He faces a mandatory life sentence, and lawyers indicated they will make a joint recommendation to raise parole eligibility to 16 years from the minimum of 10.

The body of Ryan Bradley Chartier, 21, of Grand Rapids, was found after police were called to a shooting at the complex on Larose Avenue in the early morning hours. Officers and emergency crews found the man, who was not breathing, and attempted CPR. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 21-year-old man was also wounded and taken by air ambulance to Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg.

Young was on probation at the time of the killing and had also been ordered not to possess any weapons. He has been in custody since his arrest. More details about the attack will be presented at Young's sentencing hearing later this year.

 

Selkirk Avenue break-in

WINNIPEG police are looking for four young men who broke into a Selkirk Avenue home late Wednesday night and robbed its occupants.

Police said the attack happened just before 11 p.m. in the 500 block of Selkirk Avenue.

Four men armed with weapons made their way into the residence and confronted three occupants: a 22-year-old woman, a 22-year-old man and a 25-year-old man.

The suspects demanded cash and personal items, then fled.

Police said the 22-year-old man was assaulted and injured during the robbery.

Three of the suspects are described as being 18 to 25 years of age, 5-8 with average builds. The fourth suspect is described as 18 to 25 years of age, 5-9 with medium build and blue eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.

 

Main Street assault attempt

Winnipeg police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who attempted to sexually assault a young woman on Main Street early Wednesday night.

Police said the 24-year-old woman was walking in the 600 block of Main Street around 8 p.m., when she was grabbed from behind by a man with a weapon, who tried to pull her into a nearby bushy area.

The woman broke free, ran off and contacted police.

The suspect is described as a large man, with a large belly and an acne-scarred face, about 30 years of age with long dark hair and a thick build. He was wearing a black sweater with a hood and black shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 204-986-6245 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.
